Oh, GROW up!

"E balla, e balla, balla,

Ca chi fatica...nun s'a joca a palle!"

"Piazza Dante"---Spaccanopoli

Pierino believes in neighbors and community business, especially those shops that reach to a certain excellence. Yesterday Pierino visited Grow in Manhattan Beach where his friend Josh Harrison threatened him with a mango grenade. "Josh, you did leave the pin in that thing didn't you?"

But seriously, we go to Grow for the best produce in town, and especially the best fruits and cheeses. We especially like the citrus fruits. Josh really knows his stuff. Pierino purchased some delicious "cara cara" oranges, which if I got it right are an orange and grapefruit cross. Josh will crush my head if I'm wrong on that.
Oh, and Grow is one of the few places in the 'hood that stocks cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery. Love that "Mt. Tam" and that "Red Hawk."

So, go to Grow: 1830 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

If you can't go to Grow, be sure to go to the local markets where they sell REAL food. Eat with your heart on your sleeve and a mango in your hand.
